Brann, a U.S. Central District Judge in Pennsylvania, issued an order allows Pennsylvania to move forward in certifying its election results and rejecting the Trump lawsuit, which claimed without evidence to spread voter fraud.
Brann said the Trump campaign presented “strained legal arguments without merit and speculative accusations” that were “not supported by evidence.”
“In the United States of America, this cannot justify the deprivation of a single voter, let alone all the voters in the sixth most populous state. Our people, laws and institutions demand more,” Brann wrote in order.
The president criticized Brann in a tweet late on Saturday that promised to appeal the decision to let certification move on.
“It’s all a continuation of the endless witch hunt,” Trump tweeted. “Judge Brann, who would not even allow us to present our case or evidence, is a product of Senator Pat ‘No Tariffs’ Toomey of Pennsylvania, none of my friends and Obama – No wonder.”
“WILL APPEAL!” Said Trump in another tweet.
…. WILL CANCEL!
